Recent State legislation marked a major change in cable franchise regulation in California. This legislation replaced the local franchising process with a State process under the authority of the California Public Utilities Commission. It allowed incumbent cable operators, such as Spectrum Communications (Charter), to vacate their local cable franchises and begin operating under a State-issued franchise on January 2, 2008.
